Keep up with your favorite dramas and mysteries by signing up for our newsletter, Dramalogue. 

It's time to start looking forward to Sunday, January 7, 2024. That's when the new fourth seasons of both All Creatures Great and Small and Miss Scarlet and the Duke will premiere on WTTW and PBS! 

Not only do we have the premiere dates of both shows; we also have a little taste of what's ahead and some first look images, including of one of the new cast members we previously announced for All Creatures Great and Small

It's spring 1940 in the Yorkshire Dales, and James and Helen are considering starting a family, although James could be called up to serve in the war. Helen is growing ever closer to Mrs. Hall, while a new arrival at Skeldale House—veterinary trainee Richard Carmody—shakes eveything up a bit.

Over in Victorian London, Eliza Scarlet has taken over her erstwhile rival's detective business. While that occupies her time, it sounds like she and William are also finally moving towards a decision that will end their will-they-won't-they relationship.

There's lots to look forward to next year! In the meantime, you can read recaps of our shows, and WTTW Passport members can stream many of them via the PBS app and at Plus there are plenty of good dramas and mysteries to keep you occupied in fall. 

Enjoy first look photos from both shows below.
